Sonia Portillo

Hi! My name is Sonia. I was born and raised in El Salvador, Central America, both of my parents are from El Salvador as well. I moved here to United States in 2016 and been living in Maryland since then. I am a native Spanish speaker and currently working in improve my English. I have been married for 24 years and have a 23 years old daughter, they are both bilingual. In my free time I enjoy being with my family and going on trips where I can be in contact with the nature.

In 1997, I graduated from a bachelor’s degree in Psychologist from El Salvador National University. I worked for the Salvadorian Social Security for about 13 years as a clinical psychologist, this was with adults but during my school years I took some classes that taught me about kids’ development. Since I moved here to the United States I have been working with kids, I had a job in a Spanish immersion pre school as assistant teacher. I enjoy working with kids, it makes me happy to see every achievement they have and help them to develop their abilities. My goal is to teach them new things, using what I have learnt as a psychologist combined with my experience as a preschool teacher. I am exited to be part of Whole kids Academy.
